    I have been working at Delaware State University full-time

    Pros

    They pay you on time. It was under NSF funding which is over. So there is no detail for upcoming research fellows yet.

    Cons

    They pay biweekly checks and do not deduct state and federal taxes. So by the end of the year, research fellow received 1099 form and must have enough savings to pay the taxes.

    Advice to Management

    Please do direct deposits and deduct taxes on each biweekly checks.

    Pros

    Great exposure and networking within Student Affairs career path through conferences paid for by the department. Hands on experience on event planning and student engagement.

    Cons

    Department size is very small with most administrative work left for you to do unless you trust the student workers to do it. You have to work evening and weekends to assist with student events.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in staffing for departments with large responsibilities. It burns out the staff.

    Pros

    Dover is a pleasant place to live.

    Cons

    The salary was terrible and an HBCU you expect people to be especially concerned about being treated fairly but this is not the case.

    Advice to Management

    Look at what happens to the students after they graduate.
